West Thumb Geyser Basin:
Located on Yellowstone Lake's shore,
this small thermal area holds lake shore geysers,
and bubbling paint pots.
Fishing Cone is one of many lake shore geysers submerged here until the
lake's water level drops in late summer.
Fishing Cone gets its name from the fact that fishermen used to catch
trout from the lake and then promptly drop them into its boiling waters
